L’Onde du Midi at the Louvre

Public collection | Musée du Louvre, Paris
> opening on January 24th, 2020

To mark the 30th anniversary of the Pyramid, the Musée du Louvre has commissioned another major public artwork, inviting Elias Crespin to design a new permanent piece for the museum.
Consisting of 128 metal tubes hanging from motor-powered cables, the artist’s kinetic creation, 'L’Onde du Midi', will perform its subtle choreography at the top of the Escalier du Midi in the southeast corner of the Cour Carrée. Crespin thus follows in the footsteps of leading contemporary art figures who have created works for the Louvre, such as Anselm Kiefer (2007), François Morellet (2010) and Cy Twombly (2010).
